    Everyone had really good ideas and posts of what to look for...I would advise taking it to a professional, off the grass please and have it thoroughly looked at! Money well spent.
    This is a large investment and you don't need to be facing issues immediately upon purchase... the underside of the trailer is the strength and safety place and where they can kill a deal or put cash in hand of the seller.
    Don't let a pretty paint job sway you... you need safe...then look for pretty!

    This is also a heavy trailer by the look of it to pull... you need the right size truck/SUV to handle a trailer of this size going down the highway... remember it isn't the "starting" but it is "the stopping" power and ability, brake controller or not, equalizer bars or not.
    You can't tow this trailer safely with the butt of the tow vehicle hanging down and the front tires not firmly on the ground... equalizer bars can only do so much to cover for a vehicles limitations.

    Only thing I see about the trailer that I would be hesitant about... the center post in the back is non-movable.
    If your horse now {or in the future} is not a easy load or doesn't like to "feel" things possibly slide against their side... might not be pretty loading or unloading.

    Good luck and happy shopping.

    That stock trailer the OP is looking at should not be that big a deal to tow, weight wise. Shoot-mine is a lot heavier, I am sure, and I tow with an Expedition very comfortably. I used to tow one horse in it with an Explorer. Of course all of my vehicles have the HD tow package, brakes and sway bars.
